The Causes of Primary Hypertension

Hypertension is also known as high blood pressure. And primary hypertension (or essential hypertension), is one of the various stages of high blood pressure; and is also a very common health problem that is suffered by most of the industrialized world. Stage 1 hypertension essentially is the hypertension developed in the initial phase, also known as primary.

Hypertension is a very serious condition that affects the heart, kidneys and sometimes even the nervous system, and the main problem with it is that the immense majority of the people who suffer from it are not aware that the condition is already part of them.

Primary or Essential Hypertension

Among the various stages of hypertension that people can develop, the most popular one is the one known as (essential) or stage 1 hypertension. The most important predisposing elements here include:Man with stress

  • stress

  • anxiety

  • genetics

  • excessive alcohol intake

  • diabetes

It is of considerable importance that any person suffering any of these factors speaks to their physician and if the opportunity arises gets the appropriate medication regime the sooner the better, in order to avoid the worsening of the present health problem and to obtain relief from their symptoms.

The most important thing when trying to control primary hypertension is early management, which requires making a drastic revision of your way of life. You have to start by changing your diet, and the main thing to do is stop consuming the food that contain lots of sugar and unhealthy saturated fats because they are very harmful to your already precarious health and make your health situation even worse.

Mixed fruits

You must not have any doubt that you are:
eating in a very healthy way, have a well balanced diet very rich in fresh fruits and vegetables. 

And consuming larges amount of water (at least six to eight glasses a day on average.)

There are also several different medications that are accessible for stage 1 hypertension (primary), but you must be aware that these medicines should not be consumed during a long period of time and instead should only be used during a small time frame to provide a certain amount of relief of the symptoms. 

Always remember when talking about medications; the side effects are a very likely part of it as a result of ingesting these pills and so you will desire to obtain more information about them before beginning to consume any of these prescriptions.

Once the doctor have informed you that you have developed hypertension some more extra testing will be necessary in order to determine how serious your condition actually is and if your health problem has become worse as a result of the consistent high blood pressure. A lot of cooperation will be needed between you and your physician so they can find out the best way to treat your condition and ensure you are getting better with the appropriate treatment.
